L1011 In This Photo!

Tue Jun 20, 2000 11:18 am

Take a close look at the left background of this picture?
What airline is it? My initial guess is LTU or Airlanka but I know that neither of these airlines fly to Dublin! Any guesses?



Thanks for any replies !

It is an L1011 of LTU ...could have been a charter or a diversion from a US bound Charter

Maybe a special flight by LTU to Dublin. It really looks like it.

ATA acquired a couple of ex-LTU TriStars in 1995/96 and used them for a short time period on their network, which includes flights to Ireland. The TriStars did not get repainted and carried small ATA titles hastily applied over the basic LTU colorscheme. These L1011's were retired one or two years later.
Please take a note of this picture, it shows one of the aircraft at LAS:
